Corrosion and Chemical Resistant Coatings

Engineered Coatings Provide Potent Protection Versus Two Severe Causes of Downtime

Corrosion and chemical attack are two of the most common causes of unplanned equipment downtime, and damage can come from a diversity of sources such as fluids, cleaning agents and saltwater. Our coatings effectively combat these threats by creating a nonporous protective surface on metal substrates, reducing the need to replace metal parts while extending their lifetimes.

Because corrosion and chemicals cause damage in many ways, we engineer our coatings for specific application factors that require action in order to give surfaces the attributes necessary to withstand these harsh conditions. That means your equipment will perform longer to help keep operating costs low.

Stop Corrosion and Chemical Attack

Our engineers are available to help you hold the line against corrosion and chemicals with the right coating for your application.

Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace and military parts are among the most expensive to produce and maintain, and they can be difficult or impossible to repair or replace in their intended applications. That makes surface treatments a critical line of defense against corrosive weather conditions and chemicals used during operations. Dynaloy is one of several General Magnaplate coatings that withstand extreme temperatures, with operation up to 1,699°F. Tufram is well-suited for vacuum environments and has been applied to parts on many space vehicles.
